Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre Foundation Gala
Date: Friday, September 21, 2012
We invite you to join me for the 2012 Overture Gala celebrating the 5th Anniversary of the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. The evening will pay tribute to the leadership that helped to build the newest and most elegant venue in the region.
Chaired by Helen and Jimmy Carlos, this is sure to be a fun event! The evening will feature beautiful décor by A Legendary Event, a delicious meal prepared by our own Executive Chef, MG Farris, followed by a live concert in the theater. This year’s entertainers will be Jazz legends Al Jarreau and Ramsey Lewis presented by JazzRoots; two celebrated, multi-Grammy Award winners.
Proceeds from the evening benefit the Cobb Energy Centre Foundation. The core of the Foundation’s mission is ArtsBridge, which produces quality arts education and community outreach programs designed to inspire creativity and foster the next generation of artists and arts supporters. ArtsBridge offers a variety of programming that encompasses field trips, master classes, workshops, artists-in-schools and “The Georgia High School Musical Theater Awards—the Shulers”. ArtsBridge collaborates with leading national and local arts organizations including: The Atlanta Opera, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta Ballet, Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences on Tour, and Kennesaw State University. The Foundation provides admission and transportation subsidies to schools in need of financial assistance.
